Special Insight 3: Wisdom of Emptiness
In this class, we will continue to explore the wisdom of emptiness in depth according to Lama Tsongkhapa's brilliant Middle Length Lam Rim. This is the third of a multiple part series on this subject of Special Insight.
Run time ~2 hours per session
We will begin with a brief review of what we have covered so far, including how to refute the self of persons which is the main source of our problems. Then we will proceed to cover topics such as the following:
- How phenomena are like illusions
- How to realize the emptiness of phenomena other than persons
- The reasoning of dependent origination
- The two extremes
As Shantideva wrote:
All of these practices were taught
By the Mighty One for the sake of wisdom.
Therefore those who wish to pacify suffering
Should generate this wisdom.
